Skiing > Running

Hey, hey, hey! Last I left you it was… Tuesday, oops my b, and training was trucking along nicely. I’ve somewhat fallen off the wagon a little bit since then, but it’s not my fault, I swear. I left on Friday morning for a ski trip and didn’t get back until Sunday afternoon, at which point I collapsed on the couch in an exhausted heap and couldn’t move. 

A group of 12 of us ventured up to Seven Springs, PA for a weekend of cozy drinking in a snowy environment. Some of us even hit the slopes. The last time I went skiing was about 5 years ago, so I was a little nervous to get back out there, but I’m so glad I did. It was absolutely freezing, but the conditions were awesome, and it snowed the entire day we were out, putting down another inch or two of fresh powder throughout the day.

I hit my limit for the day after about 6 hours, when I realized I couldn’t feel my fingers or stop shivering on the ski lift (and took a nice tumble down a mountain), and met up with the non-skiers who had spent their day in the Foggy Goggle drinking. We all eventually made it back to the cabin for a giant family dinner and ALL of the Olympics watching. It was a great trip and I’m ready for another! 

Workouts of the week
2/4: 2 miles + 1 on the elliptical
2/5: 3 miles w/1 of speed intervals
2/8: 6 hours of skiing

Uh… back on the training wagon this week. I swear. As soon as I stop feeling sore. Unless we get pounded  by snow, which I think we are. Womp, womp.

  1. I’m kind of glad the impending snow is falling on a light run day, otherwise I’d be getting REALLY cranky. I love snow, but running this time of year is getting tricky.

  2. I’ve heard Seven Springs is amaaazing.

  3. Skiing is better than running? You take that back right now.
